#16-121 In re J.B., S232895. (F072070, F073131; nonpublished opinion; Stanislaus County Superior Court; 516917.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed an order terminating parental rights. The court ordered briefing deferred pending decision in In re Isaiah W., S221263 (#14-123), which presents the following issue: Does a parent’s failure to appeal from a juvenile court order finding that notice under the Indian Child Welfare Act was unnecessary preclude the parent from subsequently challenging that finding more than a year later in the course of appealing an order terminating parental rights?
